Further, as per statistics by the World Bank, Japan recorded the highest proportion of geriatric population in 2014; 25% population was above the age of 65 years and above in the same year. This is acting in favor of the growth of Asia Pacific antacids market.

Countries in Northern Europe account for a high prevalence of gastro intestinal and gastro esophageal diseases over countries in Southern Europe.

Self-medication is a common practice for occasional heartburn and acidity and the easy availability of antacids over the counter is also having a positive influence on the market's growth.
